Talking To Trees
The Song Gardeners
There comes a time when an artist or artists, manifest a new
creation that is simply idyllic in every aspect, incredibly chilled in tone,
and harmonically superior, this describes the latest single from The Song Gardeners perfectly; in fact I
personally rate this to be my new personal favourite of theirs.
The slow build here is sublime, the chord changes timed to
perfection, and the harmonious vocals of Corrie
Dunn are utterly beautiful, as indeed are the soul filled harmonies of her
partner in music Mary Gospe.
The perfect compositional structure would take me back to
perhaps the late ‘90’s pop ballads, with a perfectly balanced arrangement, and
vocally exceptional presentation, and composed with a high class mix of major
and minor refrains, in a similar way with which the band Crowded House used to do back in the day.
I must also mention the excellent acoustic guitar performance
by David Scheibner, his contribution
gave the whole song a quite breath taking level of tranquillity and style, and
as such I truly believe that Talking To
Trees by The Song Gardeners is
the best work thus far by the band, and deserves much acclaim along the way,
perhaps even a very high chart placement, it certainly deserves it.
The Song Gardeners also have a lyric video for the single too, it is like a virtual forest bathing experience and you can find that here:
